Catholic Schools Office Maitland-Newcastle Logo

Each secondary school caters for students from a group of parishes in the Diocese. The enrolment boundaries are of particular importance in the Newcastle and Maitland areas where there are several secondary schools. Enrolment boundaries in these two areas has enabled us to achieve equitable class loads in all schools and thus an improved educational situation.

In the past, parents have been most co-operative with regard to enrolment boundaries. Requests for admission to a school outside the student’s catchment must be accompanied by written details of the particular educational, pastoral or family needs which can be best met by the out-of-area school. Such requests will be considered initially by the school for which the child is designated.
